We are pleased to announce the 10th Mongolian Young Leaders Program which will take place in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia under the topic of “Energy and Power – Road to a Sustainable Future”. Mongolian Young Leaders Program (MYLP) is a two-day conference that brings together Mongolia’s best minds and outstanding young leaders. Previous MYLPs have taken place in the US and Europe in cities such as New York and London, but this is the first time it will be organized in Mongolia. During the program, participants will engage in discussions relating to the program topic and meet with leading academics, professionals and experts. Participants will also become members of the Mongolian Young Leaders Network (MYLN). MYLN currently has a membership of over 100 young professionals who are all leaders in their respective fields and are united by a common goal of contributing to the development of Mongolia.
This year’s topic:
Mongolia is known for its abundant mineral resources, but it is also rich in renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power. Mongolia has the potential to not only ensure the stability of its domestic supply of energy, but to also provide energy resilience to Asia. In recent years, there has been growing interest in this sector from both domestic and foreign investors who have spotted this valuable opportunity. However, this opportunity comes with its challenges - ranging from lack of infrastructure to an unstable political and legal environment. In addition, there is a pressing need to ensure sustainability in the context of local pollution in Ulaanbaatar as well as global climate change. What Mongolia needs is a viable solution to address these immediate challenges in order to achieve sustainable economic growth in the long term.
Join us at MYLP Mongolia 2019 from Friday 25th to Saturday 26th of January where we will explore the challenges and opportunities being faced in unlocking Mongolia’s potential for sustainable energy. We are looking for a diverse set of young leaders and talented individuals who want to share their expertise and opinions on this year’s topic with other like minded people. Young professionals and university students specialising in all areas are encouraged to apply.
